Authentication Mechanisms: The Digital Arms Race


We’ve just published a new research paper ‘Authentication Mechanisms: The Digital Arms Race’. The report argues that companies which provide quick and robust authentication mechanisms will be in a strategically important position in the digital economy, and this is sparking an arms race among the major Internet ecosystems - Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon. This race is intensifying further as biometrics and wearables promise to make two-factor authentication easier and more cost-effective. What are the strategies of the internet players, and where do they need help?

The report is part of the Dealing with Disruption research stream, and you can read an excerpt of the report here.
